We left the radishes too long and they bolted to seed. I'm pulling them up and tossing into the brooder. The little pullets strip the stems of flowers first followed by the leaves. Takes them a little while, but after a day I pull the remaining stem out. I'm glad I didn't compost them once they bolted. Full little crops.

Do different breeds have different preferences or do they all eat pretty much the same things?

I agree, personal preference. I'm canning beets today and just tossed them a bunch of cooked beet skins. Most years my flock goes crazy for them (with red poop the next day). This year they pretty much ignored them.
